The dramatic appeal of a face, especially caught in a smile or laugh, lies in the interplay between the lips, teeth and gums. Any deviation from the ideal form alters perceived attractiveness, particularly if the change involves too much or too little gum tissue.

Periodontal plastic surgery allows us to transform your smile simply by restoring the shape of your gums to their optimal form. If you feel your teeth are overly long or excessively short, the problem may lie not with your teeth but instead with your gums. If your teeth seem short, the problem may stem from overabundant gum tissue (“gummy smile”), which may require cosmetic tooth lengthening.

If your teeth appear too long, you may have gum recession, which may necessitate gum grafting.
